Napoli Tracking Monaco Talent Amid Di Lorenzo Saga

Napoli have displayed a strong interest in Vanderson, who plays on the right wing, where they might lose Giovanni Di Lorenzo. His agent reiterated his desire to leave after the club denied his request. The result of the back-and-forth could be determined by a chat between the fullback and Antonio Conte after Euro 2024.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the gaffer plots to use 3-4-3 next season. He’d like to add an offensive-minded player out wide. The 22-year-old has recorded 3 goals and assisted once in 33 matches this campaign. He has joined Monaco in a €11M move from Gremio in January 2022.

Vanderson is said to be appreciated by both Conte and new Napoli director Manna. However, the Azzurri would need to empty their coffers to get him. He has a high valuation, roughly €30M, and demand relatively rich wages. He has two caps with Brazil.

Per Alfredo Pedullà, Juventus remain the most interested team in Di Lorenzo. They lead the race over Inter and other European clubs. The veteran has decided to leave and won’t change his mind. Thiago Motta and Cristiano Giuntoli consider him a top choice in his role.

Our Take on Napoli, Vanderson, and Di Lorenzo

The two things might not necessarily be intertwined as the latter could also star as an aggressive ‘braccetto’ in a three-man line. He should arguably transition to that position in the later stages of his career. It’ll be clearer later known whether the parties could still mend fences.
